Your stay can either be on a room basis (bed & breakfast with an award winning farmhouse breakfast), or on self-catering terms, large enough for up to six guests, yet equally homely for the solo traveller.

The first floor and ground floor rooms offer flexible living, with a garden that overlooks the grazing meadow.

Shops, amenities, takeaways and local pubs are all within a mile from our door to give you plenty of options. When staying with us you have a good choice for your evening meal, The Willow Tree-Barnby and the Coddington pubs of The Plough and Inn on The Green.

The proprietor lives in a nearby property so is on hand to advise you if needed.

As a working beef and arable farm there is plenty of off-road parking, providing ample room for maneuvering all vehicles and those with trailers. Parking spaces can be provided close to the ground floor rooms for those not wishing to walk too far. The parking area is secured by an electric gate and CCTV

Our accommodation is safe, secure and private so whether you are a walker, cyclist, fisherman tourist or business person, Ivy farm provides true value for money.

Gluten free and vegetarian options, along with alternative fish and egg dishes, give guests an extremely wide choice.
